Charleston, SC: Closed Terrace Hippodrome Widescreen Reopens as Hippodrome Widescreen Cinema and Performing Arts Center

Posted on Wednesday, January 12th, 2011 2:04 PM by Scott Jentsch

The Terrace Hippodrome Widescreen movie theater in Charleston, South Carolina has changed owners and will be re-opening as the Hippodrome Widescreen Cinema and Performing Arts Center. This news comes from an article that was published January 6, 2011 in The Post and Courier:

A local film producer and an attorney are buying the Concord Street venue from two local businessmen who made a run at trying to make the 426-seat former IMAX theater successful over the past 18 months.

Film production company owner Lonnie Knight, owner of Knight Vision Productions, and local attorney Akim Anastopoulo are set to close on the 18,000-square-foot building today. They hope to transform the struggling waterfront business into a multipurpose venue.

They are even changing the name from the Terrace Hippodrome to Hippodrome Widescreen Cinema and Performing Arts Center.

Cinema patrons still will be able to take in a movie on the 75-foot-wide screen, but they also will be treated to special events, such as live performers and bands.

The new owners are intending to show first-run movies, but we don't have any schedule information from them yet. Keep an eye on the Showtimes page for the theater for updates when we get them.
